A leopard gets some morning coffee

Original Source: Attie Cilliers

Attie Cilliers saw this leopard in Deception in the Central Kalahari Game Reserve, Botswana. The leopard prowled around the campsite during the night and drank all the water from a plastic basin he left on one of the camping tables. In the morning this guy obviously decided he was still thirsty and came around for a second sip. Attie was in the process of making his morning coffee when the youngster strolled into camp. He quickly made for the car and managed to record the leopard checking out the basin, coffee, chairs and the tent for something to nibble on.

    I don’t think that big kitty liked the coffee! That’s a bit of a close call I would say although beautiful and fun to watch the exploration of the camp.
